Happy, happy (belated) New Year!

For so many of us, 2010 was a struggle. If for no other reason, I was happy to ring in the new year. This was my third Las Vegas NYE and my first off the strip. The boyfriend and I headed down to Fremont Street to drink champagne, laugh with our friends and dance it up (and in a fantastic romper he bought me for Christmas, no less). Right before the clock struck midnight, Jenner pulled me aside to tell me how happy he was to spend this last year with me, as well as how excited he was going into 2011 together. Of all the moments that night, that one meant the most. Oh, and then we clinked glasses and pronounced this would be the year we tried to move out of the green shag palace. That was the cherry on top.

In my last post, I mentioned some of the hardships I experienced in 2010, but what I failed to mention was what it had an abundance of, love. There will always be hard times, and life will deal me far more difficult times than I went through last year, however, I am so grateful for all the love and all the laughs. And there were and are many, many laughs.

NYE marked the first night post-injury that I attempted to wear wedges and, let me tell you, it was fun. I'm afraid that prior to my surgery, I found myself in a bit of a rut. I didn't really want to get all gussied up and go out. So, I holed up a lot at home, with a book and a pair of slippers. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE those kind of nights more than any other kind, but being forced to a) stay home due to surgery recovery and then b) working the weekend graveyard shift gave me the opportunity to really miss nights out on the dance floor. I ended the year regretting that I had taken my mobility for granted and started to make up for it on New Year's Eve.

I plan to continue making up for it well into 2011.

I love the photo above because I look so damned happy. That's a look I plan on wearing most of the year and I hope you'll join me in this new trend. I have a great feeling about what's to come and, from the bottom of my heart, I hope this is your best year yet.

Lots of love and laughs, dancing and happiness,


  1. I think the last year took its toll... on BOTH of us. We had some similar issues that we had to overcome (being a temp-crip was one of them). I am so lucky to have had you by my side and I love you dearly! This is our year lady... and its starting off well already! Can't wait for you to move out of the green shag-pad, and move close to me (I hope)!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
